Magpul does Rhodie with new Rifleman Loop Sling (VIDEOS)

By blending the best attributes of the vaunted Rhodesian sling with its classic 1907 match-style counterpart, Magpul is releasing a new sling rich in practicality but low in price.

The Rifleman Loop Sling incorporates nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware to cough up a lightweight yet functional accessory that they bill as being at home both at Camp Perry or in the Veldt. Shown above with a G3-equipped short recce shorts wearer that looks a lot like Magpul boss Duane Liptak in what could be either Texas or Zimbabwe, the company tweaks the old Rhodesian Army’s “Be a Man Amongst Men” recruiting slogan from the Bush War period for the RLS.

At 4.4-ounces and offered in either black and coyote, the RLS retails for $19.95. It comes standard with an adjustable forward loop for stabilized shooting, is NIR treated for those who in touch with their IR signature suppression and doesn’t have tails or loose straps to grab and rattle on passing brush.

Liptak talks more about the RLS in detail below and how it differs from their MS-series slings.
